The Nine Network has taken The Ellen DeGeneres Show off Channel Nine as accusations of a ‘toxic’ workplace environment continue to plague the US comedian’s popular talkshow.

Repeats of Ellen used to run from midday each day on Channel Nine, however, a spokesperson confirmed the show has now been replaced with Desperate Housewives.

“We are resting Ellen repeats on Nine and have replaced with Desperate Housewives.

The spokesperson stressed Nine has not completely axed the show, with repeats continuing on 9Gem.

“Nine haven’t axed anything – we have been playing repeats on Nine which will continue on 9Gem. Discussions are ongoing regarding the new series.”

The decision follows an ongoing investigation into the workplace environment of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, following multiple allegations of a “toxic” culture.

It is unclear whether Nine will air new episodes, with programming director Hamish Turning telling TV Tonight earlier this month that the network did not hold rights to the show beyond this year.

“We’ll wait to hear from Warner Brothers as to the results of their internal inquiry, because at the moment, they haven’t even come forward with what the show is, or when it might go back into production.

 “We’re waiting to see what the US are doing and then obviously we’ll need to negotiate rates. There’s a lot to go under the bridge before we even get to that stage. We haven’t got a clear picture yet.”

WarnerMedia is reportedly coming to the end of its investigation.
